Mechanical Vacuum Pump Oils For Use In Freeze Drying Systems
In attempting to write a general engineering specification for vacuum pump oils to be used in Hull Company freeze drying equipment, many types of oils were encountered from many different manufacturers all claiming different things about what seemed to be the same oils. To help sort through this confusion, it was found useful to classify the oils into general categories. It is hoped that this information will be helpful in determining which vacuum pump oil is correct for your application...
Considerations When Specifying Ultimate Freeze Drying Vacuum
One of the conditions inherent to the freeze drying process is that of a proper vacuum. An evacuated chamber is essential to the vapor-pressure relationship necessary for the sublimation of ice directly into vapor. For sublimation to occur, the vacuum level must be at least below the triple point of water which is well documented to be 0 degrees celsius and 4.58 Torr. Once below this point is it possible to change the state from ice directly from vapor without passing through a liquid phase...
